Bruce is a black rhinoceros. They are distinguishable from white rhino most easily by their upper lip. A white rhino has a square lip. They are grazers. A black rhino has a prehensile upper lip which means “capable of grasping.” They are browsers.
They are critically endangered.
All the Animalia paintings in the SALE shop are from 2013 or 2014, my first years painting endangered species. Beginning in 2015, I would meet every animal I painted, and subtle differences ensued. More than any other reason, that’s why these paintings are on sale. I no longer show them with post-2015 work.
